Lebanese PM Hassan Diab Announces His Resignation And That Of His Entire Government





Daily Mail: Lebanese PM and his cabinet RESIGN over explosion that killed 160: Pressure mounts on Hezbollah-backed President as government collapses and country teeters on the brink amid furious protests over disaster

* Prime minister Hassan Diab will address the nation tonight and his health minister says the PM is set to quit
* Several ministers have already walked out while President Michel Aoun is also under pressure to resign
* Last Tuesday's ammonium nitrate explosion killed at least 163 people and injured more than 6,000 others

Lebanon's prime minister and his cabinet are set to resign today in the wake of the devastating Beirut explosion which has killed at least 163 people.

PM Hassan Diab will address the nation tonight and his own health minister Hamad Hasan says Diab is expected to step down.

Several ministers have already walked out amid public outrage over the blast, while Hezbollah-backed President Michel Aoun - who has rejected calls for an international probe into the disaster - is also facing calls to quit.

The resignation does not compel Aoun to resign but it will lead to legislative paralysis in Lebanon's French-inspired system.

Last Tuesday's disaster - caused by more than 2,000 tonnes of highly explosive ammonium nitrate which were piled up in a warehouse - killed at least 163 people and destroyed swathes of the Mediterranean capital, leaving hundreds of thousands homeless.

Many in Lebanon see the blast as a symbol of corruption and incompetence among the country's elite, and protests have broken out with tear gas fired on protesters after months of political and economic meltdown.

Much of the fury is directed at the political elite which is backed by Hezbollah, in turn backed by Iran which has called for outside countries to refrain from 'politicising' the disaster.
